2022 Week 14 investing and trading report

Our options trading was slow last week. We just adjusted our trades to keep them safe. Many of these trades were debit trades offsetting the credit ones. However, I was aggressively buying dividend and growth stocks and I feel really good about it as I think I bought at a good value.

Our net-liq dropped a bit last week as investors were freaking about a known issue – raising interest rates and FED more hawkish than a hawk. But it is all nonsense. All the things the markets are freaking about are known:

  • the war in Ukraine – known
  • high inflation – known
  • FED raising the rates – known
  • FED being overly hawkish – known
  • High yields – known
  • Yield curve inversion – known

All is known, so the selling pressure is most likely just fear created by big money to scare retail investors into selling while they are buying. But time will show. I am keeping my powder dry for more buying.

Options Investing and Trading Report

Last week we rolled our strangle trades to keep our account safe.

We were actively trading our SPX strategy that delivered $445.00 gain.

You can watch all our trades in this spreadsheet. You can watch the spreadsheet and look for a “NEW” indication next to the trading date. When the indicator shows up, it is typically good for up to 3 days to follow that trade.

Expected Future Dividend Income

We have received $36.23 in dividends last week. Our portfolio currently yields 5.02% at $108,477.66 market value.

Our projected annual dividend income in 10 years is $50,883.75 but that projection is if we do absolutely nothing and let our positions grow on their own without adding new positions or reinvesting the dividends.

We are also set to receive a $5,900.27 annual dividend income ($491.69 monthly income). We are 11.60% of our 10 year goal of $50,883.75 dividend income.

Future Divi on YOC week 14

The chart above shows how our future dividend income is based on the future yield on cost and what dividend income we may expect in the future. The expected dividend growth depends on what stocks we are adding to our portfolio and the stocks’ 3 years’ average dividend growth rate. It is interesting to see what passive income we may enjoy 10, 20, 25, or 30 years from now.


Market value of our holdings

Our non-adjusted stock holdings market value increased from $154,449.47 to $160,848.53 last week.

In 2022 we plan on accumulating dividend stocks, monetizing these positions, HFEA strategy, and SPX trading. We plan on raising more of our holdings to 100 shares so we can start selling covered calls. We continued rebalancing our options trades that released buying power significantly. That allowed us to start buying shares of our interest again.

Our goal is to accumulate 100 shares of dividend growth stocks we liked and then start selling covered calls or strangles around those positions. We also planned on reinvesting all dividends back into those holdings.

Investing and trading ROI


Our options trading delivered a 0.09% monthly ROI in April 2022, totaling a 15.97% ROI YTD. We hope that in 2022 we exceed our 45% annual revenue selling options against dividend stocks target, although as of today, we are getting behind this goal.

Our entire account is up +3.66%.

Our options trading averaged $4,331.50 per month this year. If this trend continues, we are on track to make $51,978.00 trading options in 2022. As of today, we have made $17,326.00 trading options.

Old SPX trades repair


Last week we have adjusted one of our old trades rolling it more into the future. Now we have to trade. Now we will be waiting.

We however traded our SPX put credit spread strategy which you will be able to review in my next report. The SPX strategy held well so far, and our signals kept us away from opening new trades.


Market Outlook


The stock market pulled back a bit last week which in my opinion could be expected after a strong rally. Now the question is whether this pullback turns into something more serious or not. I will be describing possible options in my weekly newsletter. A week ago, the market looked very bullish but last week, one FED official (that cannot agree on the color of an orange) opened her mouth and said something that spooked the market. Now everybody is bearish again. But I think it is the wrong side to be bearish.
